Some car accidents cause burn injuries to the victims

Depending on the angle and force of impact, one or both vehicles could catch fire in a crash. Sadly, there is often no way to predict when a vehicle will burst into flames in an accident. In those New Jersey car accidents involving fire, victims can suffer debilitating burn injuries that could take a significant amount of time from which to recover.

Even if the victim recovers, there is no guarantee that permanent scarring or nerve damage will not be occur. If the burns are severe enough, multiple surgeries could be needed in order to repair as much of the damage as possible. Medical and/or auto insurance may not be sufficient to cover all of the medical expenses associated with burn injuries. You will also most likely lose income and suffer other damages as well.

If your injuries were caused by the negligence of another, you may be entitled to restitution. An attorney can help you file a personal injury claim after first investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident that left you injured to determine what party or parties may be responsible. Once that is determined, an assessment of your current and future medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering, among other damages, can be made.

New Jersey law outlines the different types of damages that victims of car accidents are able to request in a civil action. Without the assistance of an attorney who is knowledgeable in this area of law, you may not ask for all of the damages available to you. Furthermore, many victims mistakenly accept a settlement that is much less than could have been received with the assistance of a personal injury attorney experienced in handling burn injury claims.
